    Unhappy Ubuntu 20.04.2 openssh installation issues

    Hi guys,


    I am experiencing weird issues with the installation of openssh on an out of the box Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS. I will give you the outputs I am getting;

                                       ssh-server

    As you can see I am very much stuck in this dependency loop, it's really weird behavior, especially considering this is a fresh install of an Ubuntu LTS release. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Your update check failed.
    Everything after that was bound to fail as well.

    The issue seems to be your clock is set to the wrong time.

    It's okay.
    The forums recently under went some maintenance,
    which has/had left some lingering posting issues.
    Most are resolved now.
    So it's probably a good thing you replied a little later.

    That said,
    if your issues have been solved please mark this thread as solved:
